The Butterfly (Written Pattern)

Hello Dears! Thank you for sending me your warm regards and taking the time to follow my blog & fb posts. You just made me feel so special. :) For the past weeks, I've been getting requests to write a pattern for this cute creature. So I guess it's the right time.

Magnets 1.5 cm (optional)

Special stitches:

Few Simple Tips:
Use 2 strands of crochet thread throughout the rounds.
Cut yarn after each round
On each beginning round, I usually tie the new thread on the last ch3-space of the previous round

Steps:

R1: Chain 12, slip st in first ch

For the Antenna: Using the color used on the last round, ch 20 with 2 strands held together. Tie the end of last chain. The excess thread on both ends is about half an inch. You may want to add magnets to help them stick on magnetic surface aka refrigerator. :)
I only used Elmer's All purpose glue, wait for it to settle a bit then put them on both wings.
